smile with baba. there's that pirate smile again!
"more smile with baba?" he asked me another couple of times to take another photo of him and baba.
mmm... mien mien!i've been craving ramen. strange since it's been so hot. but we made a mini outing of it and also stopped by a yummy bakery. we used to go almost every saturday after nj's music class. he still talks about music class, which is cute. he says, "want to go to music ah-ee!" and on wednesday this week he said, "want to see ah-ee and baby connor." awww. well, it was nice to get out once again. i'm feeling more comfortable with it. nj was good even sitting in a chair, no high chair, no booster seat. it's fun to be able to take him out without much hassle. while in the car, he said to me, "penguin's hot." huh? then i remembered he has his little stuffed penguin with him in the cup holder. i asked him, "penguin's hot? are you hot?" he said yes. he has a strange way of telling us! i guess he wanted the a/c turned up! And during our car ride, he kept pointing out tinted sedans and saying, "limousine! that one, mama! that one limousine!" i told him over and over that those weren't limousines, that we would point one out when we saw one. but he persisted and finally i started saying, "no baby, that's not a limousine." he'd say yes and start giggling. i'd say no, he'd say yes, i'd say no and so on... all the while laughing more and more. he just felt like being silly i guess!

i went out for the first time to meet a friend for dinner. why not? i was feeling pretty good after a long day at clinic. and how can i pass up curry house with nj eating for free? thanks for the invite, auntie janell (and happy belated too)! nj seemed so happy to have his own plate of food for himself. he picked out what he wanted on the menu... he did a good job too considering how much food was on that plate! spaghetti, meatballs, corn, fries, a fried shrimp, cream corn soup, and a slice of orange. baba asked if he could have his fried shrimp, and he said no! hee, hee, hee, made me laugh. we kept asking him if he was done yet and he'd shake his head no. it was really cute how much he enjoyed it. he had a bulging belly that hung over the belt of the highchair by the time he was done. yikes. nj was so good throughout dinner, it let us have actual conversations... something we forget about after having little ones!

he said this to me today during breakfast. baba does know how to make him giggle!
"mama carry, it's heavy!"
he proudly carries his bag whenever he can, he loves to help us with carrying stuff. but today, a few steps out the door and he stops me to hand me his bag. that's never happened before!

it amazes me at how well he adjusts to change and doesn't have anxiety over what's going on around him. although last night, he woke up crying for baba. he went to check on him and through his cries he could only make out nj saying something about mama at ucla. the next morning he (baba) told me that maybe he had a bad dream about me not being there. i've been home only a few days, maybe he's worried about me going back to ucla again. poor guy. at least he doesn't seem the least effected as he runs around playing like the silly little boy he is! it always makes me so happy to see his sweet smile. especially now that it's normal!
